Philippe Starck has unveiled his vision of a microgeneration wind turbine for home use in two versions, a 400W and a 1000W. You can get yours today at Pramac Wind for 2,500 and 3,500 euros respectively.
On the very positive side, this is a great step forward in bringing people to the aesthetic of renewable energy and they stand a real good chance of increasing the popularity of wind energy for home use. It's just another piece of designer furniture like Philippe Starck's other designs, but this time it goes on your roof...On the small down side, it is not really that much different than other brands that are already out there and I'm a little disappointed that he didn't push it a little further...opportunity missed. I think that the LAGI Design Competition will be pushing the boundaries a lot further!
